In the years this plant has been in the garden I have seen no disease. The plant suckers readily. As a seedling of David Austin's Ann I believe the plant is showing substantial R. gallica influence - a strong part of Mr. Austin's breeding program from the onset (only it reblooms!). It is setting OP hips.
